THERE has been a new ambulance warning in Sussex: ‘Only call if it serious.’

South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust covers Sussex and Kent.

It says: “It’s another extremely busy day for us but our staff are doing a fantastic job.

Please help them by only calling us if it is a serious, life-threatening emergency.

If you have called for an ambulance, please be aware we are taking longer to get to patients and ask that you only call us back if your condition worsens.

Thanks for your continued support and patience.”
